Book Reveiw

I read Night by Elie Wiesel. Night was about how Elie and his family got to concentration camps during the holocaust. He gets separated from his mom and sisters but he gets to stay with his dad. The Jews who got sent around to concentration camp got tortured. They left decaying bodies where ever. The Jews were in melancholy moods because they were abandon, in terror, at any second if they mess up even just a little bit they got killed. The Jews couldn't revolt against any of this because they would get killed. The holocaust was a very sick, twisted time. The Germans really sabotaged the Jews. Even though there were more Jews then Germans they were petrified to stand up against them because the Germans had weapons and could kill them all. The Jews were basically prisoners.
I read this book and it really made me think about how happy I am about everything changing and everything being different now from then. I feel bad for the Jews, with everything that happened to them like getting taken away from their families, seeing people die, being starved. It's so sick and cruel to do to somebody. The Geterrmans pretty much exminated the Jews from this world at this time. The Jews got numbers tattooed on them because the Germans didn't really care about their names or anything about them unless they were strong and could work good. Approximately five million Jews survived. Approximately one point five million Jew children got killed. Approximately six million Jews were killed. At one point one million Jews were killed at one concentration camp, Aushwitz.
